best of luck!

Is anyone here from Perth? If so, what surgery did you go to? I go to the Fremantle Hospital surgery and they are a bunch of clowns in there.

I need to find a better surgery :mad:

Butt of a problem

Hi, I had surgery twice (cause they mucked up the first one up) & 10 years later it's back


New Member

I was just wondering whether your surgery was covered under medicare and where you went to get it done. I have heard a few people talking about a Dr Rickard in Concord but am not sure whether itsworth making the trip.
How long were you in hospital?


New Member
Hi. Yep its covered by medicare, although it can be a long wait depending if they decide its not urgent. My latest operation was done in Newcastle under medicare.


New Member

I'm waiting for my surgery. It's going to eventually happen in Hornsby just north of Sydney. (It's gonna be a big one im afraid)


New Member
What type of surgery was covered by medicare? Doc wants to admit me via emergency room and well after reading so much open excision seems barbaric. Im in darwin moving to sydney next year. 27 ur old f with 11 yrs of pain multiple lancings no surgery.
